Piano  #earlhines Bass #hankyoung Drums #bertdahlander Guitar  #tinygrimes 1973年 ライブハウスでの録音 カルテットでのクレジットですが、 4人でアンサンブルしているのは 凄く少ない。というかハインズは バッキングなどするきないようだ。 タイニーグライムス はウォーターメロンマンできける。 ハインズは弾いてない。 という感じ 他の名盤のほうがよいかな ちなみに、寺島靖国さん著の『JAZZリクエスト・ノート』(1989年10月 講談社)には、 Tiny grimesが参加した #johnnyhodges の作品 #tripleplay が紹介されている

#nowplaying Tiny Grimes with Roy Eldridge ♪ In A Swinging Groove ♪ #jazz 久しぶりにTiny Grimesのギターと歌声を聴き、すっかりやられる。 テナーのFrank Wessの好演も光る。 違う曲だが、ギター、トランペット、ギターの絡みは小気味好くもありスリリングでもある。 #tinygrimes #royeldridge #frankwess #sonet

Born on this day in 1916, Tiny Grimes, jazz and R&B guitarist known for playing the 4-stringed tenor guitar. He played with the Art Tatum Trio, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker and Screaming Jay Hawkins. #tinygrimes #jazz #rnb #tenorguitar #blues #callintheblues

Celebrating the birthday of Lloyd Grimes aka "Tiny" aka 'Tiny "Mac" Grimes', popularly known as "Tiny Grimes". Master musician, band leader, drummer, pianist, singer, and guitarist. Tiny Grimes is notable for playing the tenor guitar; a four-stringed electric instrument. He was one of the earliest jazz electric guitarists, and he developed his own swinging style. Tiny Grimes was active throughout his career playing in an unchanged swing/bop transitional style. Grimes recorded with his own groups in New York and with a long list of leading musicians, including vocalist Billie Holiday. He is known for his work with Art Tatum and Charlie Parker. In 1948-1952 he lead an R&B-oriented group, "the Rockin' Highlanders," that featured the tenor of Red Prysock and singer Screaming Jay Hawkins. They had a hit with a version of "Loch Lomond", with the band billed as Tiny "Mac" Grimes and the Rocking Highlanders. Tiny Grimes co-headlined the first Moondog Coronation Ball, on March 21, 1952, which some consider the first rock and roll concert. In 1953 he played on the Crows, "Gee", that has been called the first original rock and roll record by an R&B group.

Thursday spinner. This is #raynance “Body And Soul” on #solidstaterecords released in 1970. Nance both a trumpeter and violinist, has played on some great records as well as in some great bands. Most known for playing with Duke Ellington groups, he’s also played along side of Earl Hines, Johnny Hodges, and Jaki Byrd. Though he has had minimal recordings as a band leader, this record is great. His violin playing is amazing. On this one my favorite are his version of “Stardust”, “Get Happy”, “Take The A Train, and Oh Happy Day”. #brewmoore on tenor, #tinygrimes and #tommylucas on guitar, #carlpruitt on bass, #stevelittle on drums, legends #rolandhanna and #jakibyard on piano, and #raynance on violin and vocals... #records #jazzrecords #vinylrecords #vinylcommunity #jazzvinyl #jazzrecords #vinylcollection #vinylrecords #contemporaryjazz #freejazz #improvisation #jazzmusic #bebop #jazz

Memorized that Tiny Grimes... solo. Now its just practicing to a metronome to get the picking smoother, after that its time to speed it up. I wonder, how long do my musician friends spend time practicing the music that they transcribe? I think im gonna spend a lot of time on this one. The actual recording averages about 102bpm. I am practicing this at 75bpm now. And honestly i might need to spend more time at 50bpm. Oh well. Practicing, especially with a metronome, is invaluable. If youve ever wondered wether or not its worth it, i'll tell you it most definitely is!

The Immortal Charlie Parker Vol.2 (1958/London Records Records)...this jazz/ be bop record cut in the middle of and the late 1940s and released in 1958 was left in the mining island of Rapu-Rapu, Albay by an American miner who married the aunt of a friend who lives in the island! Pilfered it whilst I was on vacation on the island in the late 80s! 😸Bird, Miles,Bud Powell,Tiny Grimes and Max Roach are on top of their game some 7 decades ago!

Week 3 of transcribing a couple choruses of a blues. This week it's Tiny Grimes. Anyone who spent years playing with Art Tatum, Charlie Parker and Billie Holiday must have been doing something right. This is from an early Blue Note Records session in 1944 with the Ike Quebec Quintet. #tinygrimes #transcriptiontuesday #bluesday #blueharlem #bluenote #swingguitar

Happy birthday John Hardee, aka "John Hardtimes" aka "Lost Tenor". Master musician, bandleader, educator, and saxophonist. John Hardee was a thick-toned saxophonist, who played sensibly on ballads and on swinging numbers. John Hardee first learned and played the piano. At the age of 13, he took up the saxophone and several years later began playing in local bands. Hardee worked with Don Albert in 1937-38 while he was still in college; he graduated in 1941. He directed a local Texas school band and served in the Army during World War II. In 1946 he played with Tiny Grimes and then recorded as a bandleader for Blue Note between 1946 and 1948, issuing eight releases. Later in the 1940s and early 1950s he played with Clyde Bernhardt, Cousin Joe, Russell Procope, Earl Bostic, Billy Kyle, Helen Humes, Billy Taylor, and Lucky Millinder. In the 1950s he became a schoolteacher. In 1959, he played sax on Dallas R&B group The Nightcaps' LP "Wine,Wine,Wine" (Vandan Records); he was credited as "John Hardtimes". In 1975, Hardee appeared at the Nice Jazz Festival in France with Eddie “Lockjaw" Davis. A year later, he recorded his last album, a live performance in Antibes. John Hardee has been described as the 'Lost Tenor', because of his brief popular career, and do to the lack of attention to this unsung great musician.

Ray Nance "Body and Soul" was recorded in 1969. It's unusual in that Nance doesn't play trumpet at all, only violin. "Take the 'A' Train" is played as a dirge, as Nance performanced it at Billy Strayhorn's funeral. #dukeellington #ellington #podcast #jazzpodcast #itunes #stitcher #stevebowie #bowie #jazz #cd #cdcollection #jazzcd #raynance #violin #brewmoore #rolandhanna #stevelittle #tinygrimes #jakibyard #billystrayhorn

Yep, pretty great. Early Bird aides from the mid-40s, including some from a session he had as a sideman with Tiny Grimes. Lots of the real essential stuff here, tho - “Billie’s Bounce”, “Now’s The Time”, “Koko”, all that. Excellent, excellent comp from the mid-70s.
